This is a question Political Correctness Gone Mad

Freddy Woo writes: "I once worked on an animation to help highlight the issues homeless people face in winter. The client was happy with the work, then a note came back that the ethnic mix of the characters were wrong. These were cartoon characters. They weren't meant to be ethnically anything, but we were forced to make one of them brown, at the cost of about 10k to the charity. This is how your donations are spent. Wisely as you can see."

How has PC affected you? (Please add your own tales - not five-year-old news stories cut-and-pasted from other websites)

Acting, as I sometimes do in my middle management role , as head of HR I had to speak to Job Centre Plus to arrange a posting of an employment opportunity on their database.
I carefully wrote a job description along the lines of " energetic,hard working person (NOT man - that would've been sexist)required to tote that barge, lift that bale etc in a hellhole warehouse in central London"
The, what seemed like, fifteen year old "adviser" at the Job centre demured, stating that "you can't put "hard working" as that would discriminate against "people who didn't have the same work ethic as others".
I wouldn't mind but the "candidates" that they put forward for the position would have disgraced Maccy D.
